21 is the prime# you're looking for because 37 and 53 are also prime.

Disproved: if x is prime, x mod 3 must be 1 or 2. But (x + 16) mod 3 is then 2 or 0 respectively, and (x+32) mod 3 is 0 or 1, respectively. Thus, one of { x, x+16, x+32 } is always divisible by 3 and therefore at least one of the three numbers is composite.
